Friday's jobs reports from the Bureau of Labor Statistics was once again a mixed bag of good news and bad news. In December, 103,000 jobs were added, disappointing some experts who had predicated a growth of 150,000 new positions. On the other hand, unemployment dropped from 9.8% to 9.4%.

Hot sectors in December were health care and hospitality, according to BLS. Also hot for job hunters is Information Technology, Jack Cullen, president of Modis, the IT division of staffing giant Adecco North America, told WalletPop in a telephone interview.
